Investors want to see their investment do more than just generate a return.

The startup shows strong growth potential and targets a large market.

Investors want to solve large problems.

The startup has a strong social mission and can create real change at scale.

Investors want to see the impact scale up.

The startup meets the individual investor's philanthropic mission.

Investors have impact objectives they want to achieve.

The startup needs mentorship.

Investors want to share their experience with startups.

The startup diversifies the investor's portfolio.

Investors want to broaden their portfolios for investment reasons. 

There’s an old saying:

Angel investors want to make a little money, have a little fun, and do a little good.
